    Observed possibly one component of new NOSS doublet, faint (mag 6.5 or 7) in
    10x50s and only one seen, slightly west of predicted path at:
    
    20h44m +34.0 11:52:00 UT
    20h42m +30.7 11:52:10 UT
    
    Also saw amazing pass of Progress ~ 5 minutes ahead of ISS, just as
    predicted on Heavens-above.com. Progress was +1 at best in west, ISS was >
    Jupiter for much of its pass.
    
    Best of all, consistently "bothered" by 1X flashing geosat in S, as follows:
    Obs	RA	Dec	Timing	Mag	Inst
    1	15h15 +1.5	11:40:50 UT	+3	10x
    2			11:41:55	+3	10x
    3			11:42:22	+3	10x
    4			11:42:59	+3	10x

    7			11:44:51	+3	10x
    8			11:45:29	+3	10x

    11	15h30	+1.6	11:56:41	+3	10x
    12			11:57:55	+3	10x
    13			11:58:33	+3	1x
    14			11:59:10	+3	1x
    15	15h48	+1.4	12:13:29	+3	1x	as ISS passed under
    it!
    16			12:15:58	+3	1x
    
    I can't identify from geo report on space-track and SkyMap...any ideas...?
    Great morning, very clear, steady sky, just 18d old moon
